Do you ever have one of those days when you feel like there's so much about your life you want to change? I'm having one. It's ranged from things as trivial and specific as getting my hair cut, to more significant and difficult as becoming more other-centered. It's a little overwhelming. And probably the biggest change I want to make is from being someone who thinks a lot about change to someone who actually does change. I'm not so great on the follow through, especially on the big stuff. What is the secret to making changes in life? Is it hard core determination and self-discipline? Is it breaking it down into a step-by-step plan? Wanting to change is an easy first step, and too often the last for me. And if I don't really do anything about it, do I really want it, or just want to want it? I could drive myself crazy with the questions and I seem to have an endless list. And instead of doing something about it, I write a blog entry about it and succesfully avoid another 10 minutes of making any significant changes in my life. It's easier, at least in the moment!
